My Journey to Being Happy & Healthy

Hello!! My name is Niki Treat. After gaining that dreaded freshman fifteen… ok more like thirty, I struggled for about 10 years, to feel good about myself and my body.

Have you ever experienced this struggle?

You try every workout, every diet, every affirmation but nothing gives and you’re still not seeing the progress or feeling good? I understand, I have dipped my toes in many different fitness ventures since November 2011 including a marathon, a triathlon, a figure competition, and most recently mountain biking. These events were always about hoping it would be the answer to get my body to “look” a certain way and no matter what fitness venture I took on, I was never able to maintain the weight or body I wanted. It was so frustrating because I still couldn’t get my weight to go down even though I thought I was eating healthy. I ate salads, made better choices, drank less alcohol, and even ate less cookies, but I still wasn’t fueling my body correctly-which I would later learn. I was also an emotional eater & drinker. Anytime I felt stressed or overwhelming anxiety I would eat to make myself feel better, and I would for a few moments, until the guilt of binge eating kicked in. Then I’d eat more and say it doesn’t matter. That would easily spiral into days of restricting and binging on food to control my emotions because I messed up my “diet” anyway so who cares?! I told myself I didn’t care but I did. Also, I was a personal trainer, I was supposed to look a certain way. Thinking this way put even more stress and pressure on me to look a certain way. This would just add to the vicious and dangerous cycle of try really hard-eat well-exercise or the fuck it-I can’t do this-I suck-I’m eating whatever I want.

Slowly over time I learned how to control my emotions, control my food intake, and ultimately I learned HOW to fuel my body PROPERLY and CONSISTENTLY so I could MAINTAIN my weight. I made fueling my body a priority and stuck to it. It took lots of practice, lots of self help books, podcasts, leadership retreats, crying on my floor, praying to god for help, learning how to cook meals other than chicken and broccoli, talking to friends, following leaders in my industry, reading everything “diet” I could. It took time and patience. No drastic changes, just small changes over time led me to be able to get where I am today. Happy with my body and mentally healthy!

After all…

Life isn’t about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself.

-George Bernard Shaw

P.S. This quote was a game changer in making me realize I am the captain of my ship, nobody else.

Also–scroll down to see my changes I’ve made.

This was me at my heaviest weight somewhere in 2011ish around graduating from WCU.

This was at my leanest. I trained from October to May to get this lean.

Left is when I was creeping back up toward my heaviest. Middle and Right pictures is what I tend to maintain now.

Also me now!
